Saul at the front desk was great. Warm, welcoming, easy to communicate with. Room was as the pics showed, simple, cozy, and clean. Housekeeping cleaned every day. Close to all the action, but really wasn't loud when trying to sleep. Only woke up once for a big rain. Lots of buses run nearby, so easy to find transportation.

Be advised, when you are driving here you might miss the Hotel since there is no big sign that says "Rio Malecon" there is a medium sized one that reads "hotel". Which I actually wouldn't consider this a hotel, it's much more like a Motel. The rooms were dated and dirty. There was stains on my pillow, stains on the... More

My Dear, Perhaps you did not notice the two signs that we have on each corner of main street. each one measures 2.10mt x .80mt that means they are bigger than the average person. if you could not see those you should not be driving. perhaps you did not notice either when you chose our standard room. super saver, NON...

,I liked how close this hotel is to the ocean (1 block), the river, the old district, and the malecon. It was perfectly positioned for enjoying the center of Puerto Vallarta. Our room was comfortable, clean, aesthetic, and the ac worked well. We enjoyed having a restaurant in the hotel and I loved having a margarita by the pool each... More

I was super stoked to stay here because it had awesome reviews. But it didn't end up being that great. It was clean (except for numerous dead bugs in the bathroom), and had air conditioning which was really nice. Maids were friendly, and the pool & lounge area outside was pleasant. Location of hotel was also great. The men working... More

I just don't have enough words to describe the over the top service received by all the staff at Rio Malecon. I recently stayed here with my children and it was just the best place I could have stayed at, it is very close to the ocean, transportation, food and to all kinds of shopping and tourist areas.
